When Ohio Comes to New Mexico…

we pretty much have the best time ever.

Dave flew into town earlier this summer to get his much needed Mr. Pickles fix. It had been nearly 6 months since they’d gotten to see one another, but it was like no time had passed at all. That and Dave had the super secret weapon that the little man can’t resist.

It’s like these keys are magic, Uncle Dave!

Too bad we couldn’t take the MacBook to the farmer’s market!

I wanna go home and see what Arthur and D.W. are up to!

It’s true that Mr. Pickles is usually the center of attention but we did persuade Nana Flint to watch him for an afternoon so the three of us could hit various spots in ABQ for our official unofficial Breaking Bad tour.

And just a few days later Grandpa Gato and Grandma Maria came to town, too!

This way, Grandma and Grandpa! Hurry!

To Explora we went!

Tell me more about these eddy currents, Uncle Dave! It’s blowin’ my mind!

You’re doing it wrong, dad! Let me show you how it’s done.

Woo hoo! Let’s slide, mommy!

Watch carefully, Uncle Dave. I plan to be a horticulturalist.

Yep, if there is dirt to be found, the X man finds it. Always.

While Dave headed back to Cincy, Grandpa Gato and Grandma Maria went to Roswell for the UFO Festival. So this is what we did:


Grandpa Flint had a gig with his new band, the Flashback. Beers and dancin’ all around.


And this is what I get when I tell Russ to make sure he doesn’t close his eyes for the picture.

Well, he did what I asked…

The Flashback in action.

Mustang Sally is our favorite. 🙂

And as always, the time just went by way too fast. 😦 Until October (we hope!).

Now for something totally unrelated. This is what we get when we distract the little man with the camera long enough to change his diaper.


We now have Mr. Pickles’ self portraits galore. So maybe if he’s famous one day…
